If and when BMW offers a Xenon kit, the cost will be in the $4,000 USD range according to my SA. Just enjoy your car...most people, other than other BMW owners, will never notice.

BMW does not provide a conversion kit, and my research has determined that no aftermarket kits are recommended. At least the xenon lights are standard on the 2012 528. It was interesting that BMW...

The same trunk hindges are used on the F10. The convenience of the trunk fully opening outweighs the slight loss of space.

I stand corrected. Yes, it does make sense to lease if you're a business owner or want to take advantage of the low BMW finance rates.

If you can't afford to purchase a BMW with cash, you likely need to drive a Ford. All flash and no cash! There are too many people that lease BMWs...it drives down the resale value of the brand.
